Midnight Madness Sketch #28~Rockin' Christmas!


Hello!  I made this for the Midnight Madness Sketch this week : )  Besides using the sketch, we were also asked to make a Christmas card.  On top of that, each DT member is going to choose a favorite card, and that card will displayed on their blog during the Midnight Madness Holiday Blog Hop December 8-15th! 

I just adore these images from Belles 'n Whistles, and after seeing this adorable image called Rockin' Around, I had to order it!  My daughter LOVES horses and all stuffed animals, so this reminded me of her : )  Thank you so much for stopping by, and make sure you come back later to check out what I'll be giving away for my Blogiversary!!!

Kerri!


Very nice job on this one! The images is so cute and painted very nice. Like the background the embellies and the pretty ribbon!

I don't think it's fair that you can color that good and sew that good. One talent would be fine, but for you to have both isn't fair ;)

That is such a sweet image. And especially perfect if your daughter likes stuffed animals. I love the sweet holly embellishment in the corner!
